U.S. Route 190, also known as the Ronald Reagan memorial highway, is an east-west United States highway. It evolved from the shortest of intrastate routes in 1926 to a length comparable to a main Interstate highway route, leading from the Piney forests of Louisiana to the West Texas desert.

The highway's eastern terminus is in the bayous near Slidell, Louisiana at an intersection with U.S. Route 90. This junction was once known as the "White Kitchen" after a restaurant that was once located there. [ [http://www.jjaudubon.net/page11.html White Kitchen Birding ] ] [ [http://ucmmuseum.com/hwy90la7.htm Louisiana] ] Its western terminus is in the middle of Pecos County, Texas at an intersection with Interstate 10, mi to km|20|abbr=yes from the tiny town of Iraan.

History

In the original 1926 plan, US 190 served the purpose of modern-day Interstate 12, as the road around the north side of Lake Pontchartrain.

In 1935, the route was extended across the Mississippi River, taking over a section of U.S. Route 71. It then ended in the West Texas town of Brady, Texas at an intersection with U.S. Route 87.

U.S. 190 was assigned an additional mi to km|150 across the sparsely-populated area south of San Angelo, Texas in 1979.

The current U.S. 190 near Krotz Springs, La. is a new highway. The road was built as an elevated bypass around the road called Old 190. The other bypass is the old bridge that once crossed the Morganza Spillway. It is bypassed by a single four-lane highway.

The route is now used as an alternate route for Interstate 10, across the Atchafalaya Expressway. Traffic can be diverted along Louisiana Highway 975 to Krotz Springs, and Louisiana Highway 76 to US 190/La. 1.
